Let’s switch things up this month and talk about inspiring people with stitch.
With help from others, they will make a big art drop (or art abandonment) in three cities on two continents (Baltimore, Vancouver and London) by leaving small affirmations around the towns for people to find.
“It’s time to remind both ourselves and others of just how wonderful we are just as we are. It’s time to let our acts of stitching go by leaving them in places for someone to find, someone who needs to hear those words just as you do, if not more,” says Greer.
I could not agree more, so I’m encouraging everyone to pick up their needles and get stitching! Let’s start sharing inspiring each other.
The main requirements?
Make a sign (no bigger than palm size, please) that contains an affirmation starting with “You are” on it. All types of craft are okay, so run with it! It’s up to you if you tag it with your @social_media_handle, but please tag it the back of the sign with #yasvb. Post them to arrive by Feb 4th, 2016.
Imagine finding one of these lovelies. I know it would make me so happy.
